Show Notes

Niko Laamanen is the founder of Konsensus Network, a company that focuses on localising and distributing important literature about bitcoin, Austrian economics, and sovereignty.

Niko recognised the importance of being able to convey the Bitcoin message into other languages, starting with the Finnish edition of The Bitcoin Standard which he and a small group of volunteers translated themselves. Since then the company has published over 60 books in dozens of languages.

We talk about the Konsensus Network’s mission, and the way they operate as a decentralised organisation, and at a higher-level explore the idea of how a small group can affect powerful change.

Building the Social Layer of Bitcoin in New Zealand with Bitkiwi Paul

I talk with Bitkiwi Paul about the next Bitkiwi meetup that is happening on Saturday October 28th in Auckland. We also discuss the social layer of Bitcoin in New Zealand and how it has grown enormously over the last 12 months. This time last year I didn’t really know any Bitcoiners in person, but here we are with a thriving community of Bitcoin projects, businesses, and collaborations that I am involved in, and I know there are many others out there doing the same. A lot of Proof of Work has gone into building on Bitcoin over the last few years and that is going to be important as more and more people start finding and learning about Bitcoin.
